Yes, heroine, because she’s a real woman, not one of these whining phonies who soak up air time on the Fake News Media these days.
Lindsay Shepherd, a graduate student at Wilfrid Laurier “University”, was hauled before a kangaroo court of left-wing Marxist bullies simply for showing a video of Professor Jordan Peterson as a subject for discussion. Watch it; it will show you what a poisonous cesspit Canadian Academia has become. Far from encouraging the young to tackle the great problems of our age, it is all about submitting to the Marxist commissariat that controls most Canadian universities. The postmodernist drivel that forms the substance of “Gender studies, Black studies, Any-type-of-Weirdo Studies” is passed off as education. It is in fact left-wing propaganda, not any form of academic endeavor. In the Christie Blatchford article in the National Post, take a look at the photo of one of her advisers, Herbert Pimlott, so typical of the sanctimonious oily worms that dominate the PC establishment.
Lindsay acquitted herself perfectly in this assault on her academic integrity. Congratulations, Lindsay—and double congratulations on your foresight for recording the whole thing so that the wider world can be informed of the rot in our academic institutions. If she hadn’t, they would have lied through their teeth as they always do.
Lindsay is now up there with Professors Jordan Peterson and Janice Fiamengo as torch-bearers of freedom in the darkness of academic conformity and decay. She has done a great service for us all and I know she’s up for whatever the future may throw at her.
If I ever run into her, the drinks are on me.
